the recording of this show is not that great.....

plus, this is over-rated due to Pig's "extended" rap on Good Lovin--- the 70/71 Good Lovin's contain some of my favorite instrumental passages by the dead, these versions from 71 are especially visceral. don't get me wrong, pig's contribution is vital -- he serves to spur the OTHER FOUR on to amazing heights -- but Lovelight was his steal-the-show vehicle.... he was "only" Special Guest MC on Good Lovin.

I take the July 2, 1971 Good Lovin' as Holy Scripture, BUT, I'll listen to this April 17 atrocity if you insist (LOL)!


cheers!
